This title includes: recipes, techniques and decorations from the golden age of cake-making. It is a classic Victorian book by T. Percy Lewis and A.G. Bromley, brought to the modern reader with a foreword by Nicholas Lodge. Hand-tinted illustration plates of the finished cakes appear throughout the book, as well as close-ups of piping details. Notes for the modern reader have been included to assist today's baker in adjusting and adapting recipes, with tips on unusual equipment and archaic ingredients.

This nostalgic book will enchant all cake-makers, providing a fascinating source of baking and decorating ideas, as well as an insight into forgotten techniques. This book is a treasure from a golden age. Originally published at the turn of the century, during the heyday of cake-making, it was intended to become the standard work on cakes and confectionery, for use by both amateurs and professionals. There are recipes for all kinds of traditional Victorian cakes, biscuits and cookies, petits fours, shortbreads, pound and slab cakes, gingerbreads, marzipan and nougat, as well as a multitude of fillings, icings and frostings. The illustrations in the book are remarkable examples of the photographic techniques of the time; the original publishers claimed that the high-quality image work was unique, with 'every illustration reproduced from the actual cake'. The detail of the original volume has been preserved, resulting in a book to delight the eye and inspire the modern baker.

The important base components--such as cr me patisserie, p te choux, and chocolate ganache--are presented as stand-alone recipes. Once comfortable with these, the home baker can go on to tackle the famous and more complex creations--such as clairs, Saint-Honor , Op ra--as well as feel empowered to explore new and original combinations. An entire chapter is devoted to decoration as well as sauces, syrups, and fillings. Whether used to develop skills or to refine techniques, to gain or simply broaden a repertoire, Patisserie dispels the mystery around classic French pastries, so that everyone can make them at home.

The highly anticipated complement to the "New York Times" bestselling "Momofuku" cookbook, "Momofuku Milk Bar "reveals the recipes for the innovative, addictive cookies, pies, cakes, ice creams, and more from the wildly popular bakery.
A runaway success, the "Momofuku" cookbook suffered from just one criticism among reviewers and fans: where were Christina Tosi's fantastic desserts? The compost cookie, a chunky chocolate-chip cookie studded with crunchy salty pretzels and coffee grounds; the crack pie, a sugary-buttery confection as craveable as the name implies; the cereal milk ice cream, made from everyone's favorite part of a nutritious breakfast--the milk at the bottom of a bowl of cereal; the easy layer cakes that forgo fancy frosting in favor of unfinished edges that hint at the yumminess inside.
Momofuku Milk Bar" finally shares the recipes for these now-legendary riffs on childhood flavors and down-home classics--all essentially derived from ten mother recipes--along with the compelling narrative of the unlikely beginnings of this quirky bakery's success. It all started one day when Momofuku founder David Chang asked Christina to make a dessert for dinner that night. Just like that, the pastry program at Momofuku began, and Christina's playful desserts helped the restaurants earn praise from the "New York Times "and the "Michelin Guide "and led to the opening of Milk Bar, which now draws fans from around the country and the world.
With all the recipes for the bakery's most beloved desserts--along with ones for savory baked goods that take a page from Chang's Asian-flavored cuisine, such as Kimchi Croissants with Blue Cheese--and 100 color photographs, "Momofuku Milk Bar" makes baking irresistible off-beat treats at home both foolproof and fun.

Pierre Herme is universally acknowledged as the king of French pastry with shops in Tokyo, Paris and London. He is the best, and has even been described as a couturier of pastry. This is a man at the top of his art and there is no question his macarons are in a league of its own. Macarons are the aristocrats of pastry; these brightly coloured, mini meringues, daintily sandwiched together with gooey fillings, have become a holy grail for cookery fanatics and there are even food blogs dedicated to them. Like Pierre Herme's famous macarons, it would be difficult for any macaron book to surpass this one and indeed the hardback edition has been a universal bestseller (still in print 978-1-908117-23-6). There are 208 pages of recipes and beautiful food photography, and because making macarons is mostly about technique, rather than just a standard recipe, readers will appreciate the 32-step-by-step photo-illustrated instructions for making shells and fillings. All the classics are here like dark chocolate, praline, coffee, and pistachio, but others feature the more unusual macarons that Herme is justly famous for: Isfahan is one, with lychee, rose and raspberry, Arabesque with apricot and pistachio, Satine with passion fruit, orange and cream cheese, Mandarin and pink pepper, black truffles, balsamic vinegar as well as a bright-green macaron filled with fresh mint. Anyone interested in making macarons will find MACARONS the best book in print.
